Music video[edit]

The video shows various activities (such as shopping, riding a bus, playing football), but everyone has televisions for heads, which show many different things. The only people who don't have televisions for head are the band, who are shown performing on pointing traffic signs to nearby villages, maerdy and Hirwaun.
